My FLGS scene is getting more and more competitive (very few single codex list anymore, Knights everywhere, Craftworld with bunch of wraithfighters...etc).
While I still prefer mono faction, I would like to make a list that give me a fair chance and I would like to get your opinion on this one.

Dark Eldar Air wing (Kabal of Black Heart for 6++ and Vect)
2 x Razorwing with Dissy
1 Void Raven Bomber with missile

Craftworld alaitoc battalion
Farseer Skyrunner (Doom and Guide)
Spirit Seer (Jinx)

3 x Rangers
5 Dark Reapers including and Exarch

Dark Eldar Battalion (Prophet of Flesh)
Haemonculus with vector mask
Urien Rakarth

3 x 5 Wracks
9 Grotesques
5 Scourge with Haywire
3 Talos (Chian fail and HWB)

My thinking :
- RJF deal with light armor and heavy infantry mainly but they are versatile enough to help with anything
- VRB is there for heavy targets
- The Eldar HQs buff/debuff for the Reapers who are on heavy target duty with the VRB
- The rangers are good homefield objectif holders and provide me with snippers to ping at buffinf characters
- The Coven are ther to mow hordes with the Wracks also being good objectives holders.
- The Scourges are there because I don't own more Reapers and had points left.

So what do you think?

I'm in the same boat, knights everywhere! So far I've found linked prisms and haywire skyweavers are getting the job done though.

I like the airwing, but I think you're right about getting more reapers. If you get up to 8-10 of them they really start to do some damage and make the most of doom and guide. 5 will do okay but as soon as they start taking casualties their effectiveness will drop off.

I'd also consider swapping the spiritseer for a warlock on bike, to make sure you'll always be in range to jinx something juicy. You could also just take a farseer on foot to save points, if he's just sitting back with the reapers.

I can't really comment on the coven stuff as I've never used them, but unless you really want 2 battalions, I'd recommend a harlequin outrider with haywire skyweavers.
